30. Brendon Todd (+12500)
A two-time winner on the PGA Tour's 2019-20 season with victories at the Bermuda Championship and Mayakoba Golf Classic. He proved at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational he can hang with the bigger names in stronger fields, despite a dramatic disadvantage in distance.
29. Sungjae Im (+9000)
The 2020 Honda Classic champion missed the cut in three of the four majors he has played in his young career, but he'll play his first as a PGA Tour winner. He relied heavily on his putter last week in Memphis, Tennessee.
28. Matt Kuchar (+10000)
Hasn't been in great form since the Tour's restart but showed some improvement at the WGC event, particularly with his putter. The 42-year-old has three top 10s in his last five appearances at the PGA Championship.
27. Rickie Fowler (+4000)
His betting odds don't often carry much value due to his public popularity and that's no different again for the first major of 2020. Still, he has great potential to grab at least a top-10 finish and flashed some of those abilities in a T-16 finish at TPC Southwind last week.
26. Patrick Reed (+4500)
Largely unimpressive since the PGA Tour's restart outside of a T-10 at the Memorial and a T-7 at the Charles Schwab Challenge. The 2018 Masters champ tied for second at the PGA Championship in 2017 but missed the cut each of the last two years.

25. Gary Woodland (+5000)
Finished in the top 10 of each of the last two PGA Championships. The reigning US Open champ has been dialed in on approach and is in good form with his putter.
24. Hideki Matsuyama (+4000)
Excellent form with his irons this season but has struggled with the putter and has averaged 0.52 Strokes Lost: Putting per round, according to Data Golf. Once a staple major contender, he hasn't cracked the top 10 in any of the four events in the last two years.
23. Tommy Fleetwood (+4500)
Shot 5-under par in his final round at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational to break par for the tournament. He has three top 5s in majors but has never finished better than T-35 at the PGA Championship.
22. Viktor Hovland (+5000)
Stumbled amid the tough conditions at the Memorial Tournament after finishing no worse than T-23 in his first five events since the PGA Tour's restart. He has been one of the best on Tour off-the-tee and from tee-to-green, and dramatically improved his short game over the midseason break.
21. Harris English (+9000)
English is gaining 2.27 strokes per round on the average Tour player across his last 20 rounds. He missed the cut at Charles Schwan Challenge but finished T-17 at the RBC Heritage, T-13 at the Memorial and T-18 at the 3M Open.
20. Sergio Garcia (+8000)
He's averaging 2.08 Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green per round and only needs to be average with the putter.
19. Jason Day (+4000)
His only major victory to date was at the 2015 PGA Championship. The former world No. 1 tied for fifth at last year's Masters and has been rounding back into old form with a T-7 at the Workday Charity Open, a T-4 at the Memorial Tournament and a T-6 at the WGC event.
18. Matthew Fitzpatrick (+4500)
Fitzpatrick is gaining 2.18 strokes per round on the average player this season and finished third at the Memorial before tying for sixth at the WGC event. He has five wins on the European Tour and can compete in strong fields.
17. Abraham Ancer (+6600)
Gaining 1.06 strokes per round from tee-to-green. Tied for 16th at last year's PGA Championship and has two runner-up finishes since the start of last year's FedExCup Playoffs.
16. Justin Rose (+6600)
The 2013 US Open champ has three career top 10s at the PGA Championship and tied for third at last year's US Open. Turned 40 years old last week and is looking for his 17th victory since the beginning of 2010.

15. Adam Scott (+6000)
Will make his first appearance since the PGA Tour's restart at a major where he has two straight top-10 finishes. Won The Genesis Invitational in his first event of 2020.
14. Tiger Woods (+3300)
Returns for the first time since a disappointing T-40 showing at the Memorial. Won't be as penalized for wayward drives as he was in the thick rough at Muirfield Village Golf Club in his hunt for a record-tying fifth PGA Championship win.
13. Tony Finau (+5000)
Finau's inability to close out victories on Sundays has overshadowed how well he has otherwise played. He's averaging 1.54 SG: Tee-to-Green on the season.
12. Collin Morikawa (+3300)
The Workday Charity Open winner averaged 0.75 SG: Off-the-Tee at the WGC event to build on an average of 0.57 SG: OTT per round for the season. Will play just his second major with two PGA Tour wins to his name.
11. Dustin Johnson (+2200)
Johnson showed well with a T-12 at the FedEx St. Jude Invitational after withdrawing from the 3M Open and missing the cut at the Memorial. He won the Travelers Championship, but his inconsistency carries risk.

10. Patrick Cantlay (+3000)
Averaging 1.77 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.02 SG: Approach over the season. Tied for third at last year's PGA Championship and ninth at the Masters.
9. Bryson DeChambeau (+1600)
The prestige has worn off a bit from DeChambeau's new swing and added distance. He was dominant on the greens and off-the-tee last week but struggled from tee-to-green and on approach.
8. Tyrrell Hatton (+5000)
Was in excellent form prior to the WGC, where he finished in a tie for 69th in the no-cut, 78-man event. He previously ranked first on Tour in SG: Putting, second in SG: Approach and fifth in SG: Tee-to-Green.
7. Webb Simpson (+2500)
Simpson just missed out on a top-10 finish last week but rebounded nicely from a surprising missed cut at the Memorial. He has two wins and two other top 10s in seven events in 2020.
6. Xander Schauffele (+2000)
Lost 1.40 strokes per round on approach last week but gained 1.58 strokes around the greens. Has finished in the top six in five of 11 career major appearances.
5. Rory McIlroy (+1400)
Gained 0.81 strokes per round off-the-tee last week but still finished well back at 1-under par. Still ranks No. 1 in the Golfweek rankings but hasn't cracked a top 10 since the restart.
4. Daniel Berger (+4000)
The Charles Schwab Challenge winner turned in another top result at the WGC with a final round of 5-under par to finish T-2. Leads the Tour with 2.77 strokes gained per round on the average player this season.
3. Jon Rahm (+1500)
Handily beat a similar field at the 2020 Memorial Tournament. Has four top 10s but three missed cuts in his last eight majors.

2. Justin Thomas (+1000)
Earned his second victory of 2020 at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Won the 2017 PGA Championship but didn't play last year due to a wrist injury. Moved back to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking with the win at TPC Southwind.
1. Brooks Koepka (+1000)
Gave away the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational with a ball in the water on No. 18 but will attempt another defense of his PGA Championship crown this week. Was the solo betting favorite up until Thomas' win at the WGC became official.
